Led by Bangalore and Hyderabad, the MagicBricks' 11 City PropIndex Rises 2%

NEW DELHI, December 6, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

The Sixth Edition of's PropIndex, the First Index of its Kind That Tracks Demand and Supply of Properties Across 11 Major Cities of India, hit the Stands

Despite weak buyer sentiments, the National Property Index (NPI) went up by over 2 percent in the Jul-Sept' 2012 quarter as compared to Apr-Jun' 2012 quarter. Of the 11 cities in the apartment Index, 9 cities showed a rise in the property index values - led by the southern metros of Bangalore and Hyderabad.

Based on dynamic data mined from, PropIndex focuses on the National Property Index (NPI), a weighted average of city indices. The data from India's No.1 property portal is refined with intricate algorithms to arrive at Index Values at locality, city and national levels across India.

The composite index values of each of the 11 cities are drawn from the changing indices of different localities. Localities that are more active compared to others contribute more significantly to the index values of that city. This index is reflective of trends across multi-storey and single floor apartments (commonly known as builder floors).

This quarter, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida-Ghaziabad, Pune, Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Bangalore - all saw a rise in their indices while Mumbai and Chennai registered stable values.

Bangalore topped the city index chart by registering an average of 7 percent increase followed by Hyderabad, Gurgaon and Pune with 5, and 3 percent rise, respectively. The city witnessed a change of about 7-9 % in capital values in some top localities.

Ahmedabad, Delhi, Kolkata, Noida and Ghaziabad saw a rise of 1-3 percent in the city index values. Bangalore, Hyderabad, Pune and Gurgaon were the major contributors to the NPI within the Jul-Sept quarter.

Some of the other Significant Findings of PropIndex include:

1. Areas that witnessed good road infrastructure, metro-rail connectivity and better facilities saw a rise in values.

2. Affordable localities saw increased buyer demand as compared to premium localities in cities such as Pune, Bangalore, and Mumbai.

3. Increased values were registered across IT-driven localities in cities such as Bangalore, Pune, Kolkata and Chennai for both outright purchase and lease.

4. Similar to the last quarter, growing preferences for smaller sized residential units (1 and 2 BHK) were recorded in almost all the cities.

5. Multi-storey apartments remained the most sought-after property type across all cities. Demand for larger unit-size properties was mainly witnessed in premium localities. The supply of these units continued to outstrip the demand in this category in almost all the cities.
